Gov. Quinn Vetoes Legislation Mandating Plastic Bag Recycling


Governor Pat Quinn has vetoed legislation aimed at promoting recycling of plastic grocery bags, saying the legislation blocked local communities from coming up with their own innovative ideas for reducing waste.

 

Plastic bag manufacturers and retailers had supported the bill, which required manufacturers to register with the state and permitted stores only to use bags from registered manufacturers.

 

But the bill also prohibited more stringent local initiatives, including bans on plastic bags.

 

Such bans have been implemented in other major cities and was under consideration in Champaign.
